Now I can browse faster in KickPim

After upgrading my kdepim to HEAD (nicely, I did a PKGBUILD for archlinux that grabs and builds it). I started to fill my kabc pictures with the nice kde:KPixmapRegionSelectorDialog from Antonio and other developers (This dialog should be used in Kopete to select the MSN display picture for instance) (yes I coded a similar one too and then realized it was already commited). Then I modified the nice applet kickpim (I can't live without it) to show the kabc pictures. Kopete contact list should be next victim. Even KMail's quick address selector is a good candidate. Any place where you look for a person quickly is a good candidate if you can match faces instead of reading the name.



It's a good idea to integrate pictures in contact list :), the wishlist report for this is :

An another good idea is to access display picture from the style xsl sheet => because I use this chat window style =>

Great stuff. This kind of functionality does a good job of demonstrating the power of kabc and kopete integration. Thanks for you work.

I hope you noticed that screenie its KickPim, not Kopete. Kopete will be my next victim :-)

I am also a KDE developer who uses ArchLinux. Glad I'm not the only one :)
